About Versus Arthritis

This is an exciting time to join us in People and Organisational Development (POD), where we’re recruiting to new roles created following a review and restructure. This is an opportunity to lead a step change in our approach to people engagement and join our community providing support for people with arthritis across the UK.

Further information is provided in a Candidate Pack, when you click the APPLY NOW BUTTON

To achieve our ambition to ensure that one day no one will live with the pain, fatigue and isolation that arthritis causes, we want to be accurately reflecting the UK’s diverse population.  Currently 44% of our workforce are disabled or have a long-term health condition and 38% of our workforce have a direct relationship with arthritis.  We are a Disability Confident Committed employer with an action plan to become Disability Confident Leaders soon.

About the Role

We want to be a destination of choice for volunteers and staff and we know that to do that we need to radically overhaul our approach to the people experience, while ensuring wellbeing remains at the heart of this. Since the merger we have almost doubled in size and our approach to people experience needs to catch up with this. This role will lead work to develop strategic approaches to core areas such as reward, internal communications, and learning and development. It will also oversee plans for a significant growth in volunteering. As the leader of the team you’ll need to help us make choices about how to prioritise and phase our efforts for maximum impact.
